Applying oil to timber floor inside hall

St Stephen’s Hall and Forecourt Redevelopment Project

17 March 2019

Last Friday and Saturday, we made the hard decision to postpone the long-planned Hall Re-opening Celebration. This was the right decision to make.

When we set the date for the party, we had anticipated based on advice from the builder that we would have about a month to settle back in to the building before the party. We’ve subsequently seen this time buffer eroded from month to weeks to days with some uncertainty about whether the hall would be available at all.

Thank you for your patience as we reset the clock to allow an orderly transition back into the hall.

This week, you’ll notice the portable toilets have gone! Male and Female toilet facilities are available under the hall and accessible through the new courtyard whilst the accessible toilet inside the hall will be available via the hall foyer. Note that the remainder of the building remains off limits for the time being.
